Phylogenetic Monte Carlo

This package accompanies my publication, with Graham Coop & Peter Ralph (2012) Is your phylogeny Informative? Measuring the power of comparative methods. In Evolution. (doi) (pdf) (arXiv) (code) (data)


This repository provides the legacy version of geiger compatible with my pmc package (now archived, see my post on this issue for more background).

If you need the geiger that was, and/or you need pmc, you can install this copy directly from your R terminal. First, install the devtools package:


and then you can install each from github with:

install_github("geiger", "cboettig")
install_github("pmc", "cboettig")

Getting Started

The best place to start learning the package commands is to read the package vignette, copy-pasting the examples in as you go. For a faster start, just look at the examples in the function documentation, i.e. ?pmc.
